While I understand your concerns, I'd like us to stop thinking at the above
fact as a problem.
What's honestly the issue if we only have, say, 20 specs be implemented ?

Also, why could we say which specs should be cut, if we already agreed them
? And which ones ?

We are a community where everyone tries to work upstream when they can. And
it's fine.
